Even though it’s a home shared with 20 more… it beats living on the street! Actually only 19 more now that Orange Boy had passed away… miss him very much!
Bunny was hit by a car and almost died after hiding with a broken jaw unable to eat and drink for many days. Nush can be seen in the background at the window. Everywhere there are steps for her to go up onto the furniture.
Nushi was abandoned at the void deck at the old age of 9. She was sitting in her own pee, too scared to move. Now she is 14 years old and the queen of the house! No one dare mess with her… not even Darly!
Hope was at risk of drowning in the drain. After sterilization he fell sick then started limping… in the end didn’t have the heart to release him.

Not a good place Billy Boy
Not an easy task trying to combine the different groups but usually fights can be settled with a spray bottle and some rolled up newspaper.
Damy however will just be running from one cat to the next to challenge them for a fight… so for the time being he needs to be either restrained by a harness or caged while balcony and bedroom doors are open for all the cats to mingle.
Brought Bunny to MPVC for removal of the wire today and thought might as well do the teeth at the same time. He had one upper fang pulled and one tooth filed down. Seems he is still not able to close his mouth completely… but it’s much better!
Lots of useful cat stuff was given to me by another caregiver. They love the 3-way tunnel. The cat-tree went straight into my bedroom… before Ashley’s could spray on it!

Brought Bunny for re-check today. The vet agreed to remove the feeding tube and also no more medication is needed. The wire has to remain a little longer (until early Feb).
The vet explained that one of the lower incisors hits the upper palate preventing him from closing his mouth and he will need to have soft food. The estimated cost for pulling the two lower incisors would be $300, so I guess we will wait and see how Bunny can adjust.
Bunny is getting more difficult to handle. Could not tube-feed and medicate him this morning. Managed to do so at night but it took a lot of trying… and changing the bandage is also very difficult… growling hissing and swiping!
Bunny has not touched any food again since that first time…
Bunny is more difficult to handle than Stoney… could not manage to apply the eye drops but at least he allows the tube-feeding.
Now we both have flu! So I took Panadol and brought Bunny to the vet . Doxy and eye drops have been added to his medication and also Lactulose for his constipation.
May not update my blog or check e-mails for the next few days. Anything important please sms or call, thanks!
We have to soldier on!
Bunny has the flu, I think…
His eyes get crusted with brownish discharge and he won’t let me wipe them properly. I am applying Solcoseryl eye gel. Hope he is strong to fight this…!
I am giving all I can…it’s not enough but that’s the way it is!
We have to make do with what we have!
People like me must be crazy… spending more on cat food then what we can earn each month. Worse… now I have to reject cat-sitting jobs because need to take care of the sick and injured. I am caught in a vicious downward spiral and there is no hope…
Bunny is unable to close his mouth because the jaw shifted and he may need to have his incisors removed later on. From how the vet described the broken palate it must have been really very bad…
Stoney finally had his wire removed…

Bunny was discharged today
Stoney & Bunny know each other
Vet Bill $971,-
Bunny, be strong and recover!
The vet says Bunny still looks dull and may not be able to take the surgery but waiting is also very risky…
I gave the go ahead as I am pretty sure the injury happened 5 days ago… if not he would have turned up for feeding. He has been 5 days without food and my gut feeling is not to wait any longer!
I consulted my old friend The Dream Cards yesterday and if my interpretation of the spread is correct then the cards show that Bunny will live! There is a great struggle central to the issue but there is resolution , healing… not transition. The future card shows caring nurturing .. a weak newborn lamb is handed to the seeker to care for….
I was not able to visit Bunny today… sigh!
When there where 7 missed calls from Sylvia at 1am I braced myself for bad news… still I could not take it – I was in a daze. Sylvia said that Bunny was even worse then Stoney and looked like he was going to die. His head swollen … unable to move.
Sylvia knew that I had been close to break down and offered to call SPCA and I almost agreed…
I managed to call Mohan but was not really able to communicate coherently… then grabbed a carrier and cycled to the location. Bunny was under a car… he did not struggle when we placed him into the carrier. The accident must have happened 3 or 4 days ago and he was severely dehydrated. Mohan set up the drip at 3am… that probably saved his life. Ivy helped me to bring him to Mt. Pleasant Hospital this morning.
The jaw is broken and so are the upper and lower palate. Will visit him tomorrow…
Bunny has a wound at the front of his neck. Tried to trap him yesterday but he wouldn’t enter the trap even though he was hungry. Bunny was already weary of me so Sylvia finally gave him his food and managed to quickly apply some powder while he was eating.
Bunny looks well again
At one time he had lost much weight and the Shanghai Lady was worried, asked me to have a look. According to the feeder he was still eating well and acting normal so I didn’t bring him to the vet.
Bunny wouldn’t let me handle him until he was released. Then the next day I lifted Bunny up to check the wound…and there was no wound and no belly hair shaved. Puzzled, I looked at his back again …and on closer inspection it looks like a very underdeveloped male. Good that the vet double-checked 🙂
Bunny appeared at block *24 area 2 about 2 weeks ago. She is a tall cat with a bobtail. Bunny will be sterilised tomorrow.
The complainant called again…claiming Floppy slept in front of her door. she didn’t actually see her but noticed cat hair on the cloth placed between door and gate to keep the lizards out. Luckily, I remembered those plastic mats Dawn mentioned in her blog… she can get 2 of those from Daiso and place them in front of her steps. that should keep the cat away. Actually Sylvia says that the cat no longer goes up to the 9th floor…but perhaps she still does so occasionally.
